Westpac Banking Corporation (WBC) (AX: WBC), Australia's biggest lender by market value, has sold JPY245bn of bonds, including the first samurai notes since Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc collapsed in September.

The Sydney-based bank had sold JPY133bn of five-year, fixed-rate samurais paying 1.7 percent and JPY11.8bn of three-year notes paying 1.27 percent, Bloomberg News said in a report citing a sale document.

The sale also included JPY56.5bn of five-year floating-rate samurais yielding 70 basis points more than the three-month London interbank offered rate for yen and JPY44bn of three-year, fixed-rate euroyen notes paying 1.27 percent.
